Yeah, she kept doing that to me too. Told me to shut up when I told her to stop setting me up for TW.

Psh, talk to me when you get 144 points.

That's my record, and I'm proud of it! biggrin.gif

Yep smile.gif. It was Juga.

Edit: Well, it was Juga, and then the triple letter also went to form 'Jo' so I guess that was two words. But still cool imo tongue.gif. But I'm sure there are a lot of people that have gotten higher than that sad.gif

On the other hand, it's left me with major insecurities. Even today I have trouble believing that anyone - including my family members and closest friends - really wants to spend time with me. I worry that I'm being a burden on people, and consequently do a poor job of building and keeping strong relationships. This behavior on my part does not make the world a better place.





I feel the same things, but I actually do feel like that makes me somewhat beneficially aware of how I act around other people, and a bit more appreciative of people who do enjoy hanging around me.

I dunno, I'm not so sure insecurities are like a massive flaw that only flawed people have. I think it's a part of being a socialized human.

She's cheating during our current game, btw. I'm just too classy to call her out on it.

I need to read a novel before the end of break. Probably something that came out relatively recently, but not like Game of Thrones recently.

Are graphic novels allowed? Because I could name a couple hundred that would break your mind

I have heard of none of these, except the Palahniuk novel, and I'm still weirded out from some of his short stories I read when I was like 14. Would you recommend those over perhaps more acclaimed novels that I need to get to eventually in the vein of Infinite Jest, The Human Stain, or Foucault's Pendulum?

I would place them further down a theoretical list, but I wouldn't count any out.

if you only have a week, oscar wao is 100% the way to go. it seriously won a pulitzer, and you can put it away in a few dedicated days.

infinite jest is tedious but kinda good, and i've never read the other two.

(in terms of graphic novels, i would recommend red sun. i've read very few, but it's pretty damn awesome: it posits what would've happened if superman had landed in the ussr instead of the us)

(pps, i only put invisible monsters since i figured you'd read choke, survivor, fight club, etc. invisible monsters is the most smurfed up and therefore the least read. DO NOT start with it)
